Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There are several different ways to come up with the slope. The easiest way in this case is to compute the rise/run

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1plot two convenient points on the line In this case, the origin and (1,5). Then, starting at the origin ' count five units down. That's your rise. It's a RISE in the NEGATIVE direction. Then count one unit to the right. That's a RUN of one unit. So m= rise/run =5/1 =5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Awesome. There are other methods to calculate the slope but that's the graphical (EASIEST) method.
